Alpine Media Technology is headed by trio Freddie Peyerl,
Gerrit Van de Kemp and Jeff Connors. While each comes from
different career backgrounds such as financial services, phar-maceutical

presence of gas station media systems led to a weekend-long
brainstorming session surrounding the idea that digital infor-mation
systems on chairlifts could provide a great number of
benefits to maximize guest experiences.”
Alpine Media’s website says it all when it states: “Information is
Powder.” Help resort guests discover more powder, more carving,
more ski excitement with better real-time data when they need
it most. Check out www.AlpineMediaTech.com to get the drift on
